    How To Get A Job!


    A business man was interviewing applicants for the position of divisional manager. He devised a simple test to select the most suitable person for the job. He asked each applicant the question, "What is two and two?"

    The first interviewee was a journalist. His answer was "Twenty-two."

    The second applicant was an engineer. He pulled out a slide rule and showed the answer to be between 3.999 and 4.001.

    The next person was a lawyer. He stated that in the case of Kennyson vs. IRS, two and two was proven to be four.

    The last applicant was an accountant. The business man asked him, "How much is two and two?"

    The accountant got up from her chair, went over to the door and closed it then came back and sat down. She leaned across the desk and said in a low voice....

    "How much do you want it to be?"

    She got the job.

    A SLIDE RULE??????? Sounds like a fairly old joke. Was the office lit with oil lamps, too?

    Age of jokes

    Most jokes are like everything else around us. They just get recycled over and over after a few years.

    You were quicker than me to catch the "slide rule" part. Guess I could have changed it to pocket calculator.:p
